Travel and Parking

Engineering Discovery Days exhibits are located on the University of Washington campus, near Loew Hall. To help you find your way, download a printable campus map.

See UW Commuter Services for transportation information, including bus service, light rail service, directions, and parking details. Parking information for school buses will be provided closer to the event date.


Cars can park in the E-18 parking lot. See the campus map and driving directions. The fee for car parking is $6.00, paid via the Digital Pay machines in the lot (Visa/Mastercard accepted). Bus parking is free.

Look for the welcome booth in the parking lot, as well as one outside of Loew Hall on campus. Please stop by and pick up a program. The program lists the exhibits and locations, and also includes a map.

Bus Parking

Bus parking is for registered buses only. Please drop off and park according to your assignment unless otherwise pre-arranged.

If you are NOT parking on campus, the drop-off and pick-up location for buses is the E-18 parking lot; please view the parking map for directions. Although this is the same location as bus parking, you may not park your bus if you have not registered or if you registered your bus AFTER the cut-off date.

Disability Parking

If you need special arrangements, please contact UW Transportation Services at 206-616-8710 or

Eating on Campus

A variety of food choices are available for purchase, although lines at food venues can be long and time-consuming. See the campus dining map for these and other locations.

You are encouraged to bring your own picnic or sack lunch and enjoy plenty of indoor and outdoor eating spots.
